Safari Cabin Rentals

We have 8 safari cabins that are available for overnight stays throughout the year. These cabins offer beautiful views and include plenty of complimentary amenities. You can check out our amenities here!

Don’t wait, request your reservation now! After you’ve made your reservation, you’ll receive a confirmation invoice for your own records! The rates that you see below do not include tax. Plan to pay both sales tax and hotel/motel tax on your stay. These taxes will be reflected in your confirmation email, as well as all of our current policies.

Is there a minimum night’s stay? The Exotic Resort Zoo maintains a two-night minimum on the weekends, and during the Spring, Summer and Holiday Breaks. However, you are welcome to inquire about one-night stays during our slower seasons. If approved for a one-night stay, guests will pay a one-time Housekeeping Fee dependent on the size of the cabin. For two-night stays, the fee is waived! To check one-night availability, click here.
